Made to look gritty, grimy and altogether charming like the downhome taco joints you’d find in Baja and Tijuana (we love the funny Spanish-language signs hanging throughout the space), this San Diego import introduces Miami to the world of SoCal-style Mexican food. The namesake dish here is one not to miss, especially the classic fish taco that’s come to signify the region. But the real winner, or at least the one you’re bound to see plastered all over social media, is the carne asada fries—like a souped-up, Mexican version of disco fries but with chunks of juicy beef and loaded with cheese and other toppings. As for drinks, the selection here is limited, albeit it authentic with a smattering of Mexican beers and Jarritos you grab from a cooler out front. The Taco Stand might be Wynwood’s other taco joint to some (Coyo Taco is just up the block), but the funky Baja-inspired spot deserves more than second billing.
